Book Review

With the release of his book ‘The Naked Truth, or the True State of the Primitive Church’ being printed this year unsigned, Herbert Croft, Bishop of Hereford, grandson of Sir James Croft, has raised some commotion in set forth proposals for a comprehension with the dissenters in England. This reader gained possession of an early release copy, and in discussion of the tract with Reverend Gilbert Burnet comes to agree that Croft rebukes the King in his sermons so indiscreetly that his loss of ground was swift, Crofts retreat to Hertford ws strategic rather than voluntary; and this book is his effort to regain royal ground, as such must be read with a wary eye to the underlying motivations of it’s author. Rev. Burnet is adamant to publish a defamation of the text.
